Android Virtual Reality (VR) Headset: Google To Announce Next Week

Google to Launch Standalone 'Android VR' Headset at I/O Next Week: Report

Rumours have been rife that Google has been working on a standalone VR headset that does not require an Android smartphone to power it, like the Gear VR or Google Cardboard do. The company was expected to showcase the VR headset at Google I/O, which kicks off next week, apart from showing enhancements in Android that make the platform more virtual reality friendly. Now, a new report is claiming access to fresh details about the standalone VR headset from Google.
